Report article RSS Feed Earth Defense June Media Update

After a long period of inactivity, we are most certainly not dead. Progress is moving at a steady pace, and we anticipate some serious updates in the forthcoming Summer holidays!

Status Update

It's hard to believe it's been almost half a year since our last update. It's been ages since we last showed anything off, and we decided it was about time we did so. A lot of progress has been made in the past few months, and just to prove it, here's a short look at some of the newly-created material.

Ships

SB Kahlan

The Kahlan is our new bomber, courtesy of our exceptional modder, Moonred. Maps by FreeSpaceKing, and in-game conversion process completed by Blowfish. It's pretty deadly, with shields and firepower comparable to some of the heaviest Terran bombers yet capable of dogfighting pretty well. You'll see a lot of these around, so we've made them extra pretty for you.




GTF Ezechiel

Sure, you've seen this one a few times before, but not like this. With all-new texture maps courtesy of our amazing 2D artist, FreeSpaceKing, this fighter is looking so much better:


Planets

A few new planets have been created by our two background artists, FreeSpace Freak (FSF) and Watsisname (yep, that's really his name). Here are three of them:

Renders

However, our most notable update over the past few months has definitely been the creation of several all-new high-definition cutscenes, created solely by our new animator, Nighteyes. Here are a couple of pictures:


The ruined hulk of the Neo-Terran Frigate Iceni, a remnant of a forgotten legacy...


A re-creation of the endgame cutscene of FreeSpace 2


Works-in-progress

Just to round it all off now, here are a few works-in-progress which we hope to see completed by the end of the summer holidays.


A large Terran freighter WIP, created by our modeller -Hades-.


A gas-mining variant of the above freighter, also created by -Hades-.

An ambient-occlusion render of a subspace drive device.




Well, that's it for today. Keep on the look out for additional media. In the next few months, we anticipate trailers, more renders and a lot more screenshots. Enjoy the Summer!

great update guys! I don't mind waiting if the updates are that good.

Try 5 months instead of 6 next time though ;)
